Homemade Halloween Fashion Icons: Part 1

I’m so excited for the Halloween Costumes we worked on this year! These would probably make better adult costumes but kids definitely make cuter models. They are super easy to put together and they look very chic! A super big thanks to my friend Fergi Johnson who put all these together and to Sarah at Modern Kids for the awesome photos. PS – Make sure you don’t miss our costumes based on Bill Cunningham, Karl Lagerfeld, and Iris Apfel in Part 2 of this series!

Yarn Spiderwebs DIY

By Kathleen Ballos

Have you started decorating for Halloween yet? I always seem to have trouble finding outdoor decorations to accompany my jack-o-lanterns. Try your hand at these graphic spiderwebs! Made of yarn and tulle, they cling to almost any bush or leafy surface and make a real impact! If you don’t have any suitable bushes, try hanging them on hooked suction cups in your window.

Halloween Heart Face Box DIY

by Sally J Shim

It’s time to start thinking about Halloween goodies for my boys to pass out to their classmates. We love the Comme des Garçons Play heart logo so I thought it would be fun to make our own Halloween inspired version. You can fill the pillow boxes with sweet treats like candy or cookies or non-sweet treats like crayons and stickers.

Ghost Parade DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

What I’ve learned is that kid’s parties are always better with a project, game or activity planned. What I’ve also learned is that kids love anything on a stick – which I discovered this summer when I tied a balloon to a stick in the park for my boys. They were entertained for quite a long time, while I watched in surprise at how much fun they were having.

I was inspired to make a set of ghosts that we could then bring to a ‘Ghost Party’ in our local park. The ghosts were actually so easy to make, the only thing I had to buy was a bottle of starch from the grocery store, and some wooden dowels from the hardware store – everything else you probably already have around your house.
